FAEA Awards

The Florida Art Education Association’s rationale for presenting annual awards is:

  • To recognize individuals within the membership who have achieved the highest level of professionalism in art education; and
  • To show appreciation for individuals or organizations that have contributed their services in an exemplary way to the association and to the professional goals we share.
